See? I can spin a story just like Bill Hobbs. Apparently he thinks there’s something wrong with recognizing the reality that women are already in combat zones and deserve to have that recognized and to be paid appropriately.
Plus, I love how, when backed into a corner, Republicans like Hobbs cannot help but let the fact that they hate men show. Oh, men have to go off to war and die? Well, whoop-dee-doo. But our precious women?! No, don’t take them!
A more cynical person than me would note that there are quite a few people who support the wars we’re in who aren’t fighting them and who might benefit in ways they otherwise could not if all the brave men are overseas, and the women are not.
